- This means that we have now reached a situation where the limitation and curtailment of the human rights of women and girls is so serious that it means persecution, says Carl Bexelius, head of justice at the Swedish Migration Agency to TV4.

This means that all Afghan women and girls who apply for a residence permit in Sweden will receive it.

According to TV4, journalists, human rights fighters and representatives of the former regime are also covered, regardless of gender.

People from Afghanistan who have had their application rejected may therefore receive a new notification.

- If you have received a rejection decision from the Swedish Migration Agency, then I think you should contact the Swedish Migration Agency and request a new review, says Carl Bexelius to the television channel.
